Michigan Natators Open 1937 Season Today Against I
To Win Place
In Each Event
Kirar Is Aiming At World
Mark In 50-Yard Dash;
Sprinters Are Strong
Meet To Start At 4 P.M.;
Kasley, Barnard Lead
Michigan's Varsity swimming team
swings into action today meeting In-
diana at 4 p.m. in the Intramural pool
in the first dual meet of the 1937
season. One of the strongest aggre-
gations ever to swim for Michigan
will take to the water this afternoon
against the Hoosiermermen.Ks
Led by Co-captains Jack Kasley
and Frank Barnard, the natators will
seek places in every event and, ac-
cording to dope comparing the two
squads, Michigan should have no
trouble in attaining that end. Al-
though it is impossible to crack con-
ference records in a dual meet, at
least one of the Varsity natators will
be out to smash a world record.
Kirar Seeks Mark
Ed Kirar, entered in the 50-yard
dash, has his eye on the official
world's record of 22.8 seconds forthe
event and has announced that he
will definitely attempt to crack the
existing mark tonight. Also entered
in the 50-yard event with Kirar are
Mannley Osgood and Bob Mowerson
of the Varsity and Capt. Bob La-
Plante and Jim Herdrich of Indiana.
Kirar has unofficially bettered the
world mark in previous attempts.

There will be plenty of speed in
the century dash. Ed Kirar and Bob
Emmett, both- competing on the Var-
sity for the first time should kick up
quite a wake for Sam Klezmer and
Bob LaPlante of Indiana to plow
through. These two stellar perform-
ers will team up with Mowerson
and Osgood for the 400-yard free
style relay, the last event of the meet.

Bud Foster's Team Seeks
First Big Ten Victory,
Will Use Fast Break
By RAY GOODMAN
CHICAGO, Ill., Jan. 15.-(Special
to The Daily)-Despite Wisconsin's
poor showing in its first three Con-
ference games the Michigan bas-
ketball team is expected to run into
a tough team to beat when the Wol-
verines take the floor against the
Badgers in Madison tomorrow night.
The Varsity. will be out for sec-
ond Big Ten win while Coach Bud
Foster's quintet will be seeking its
first victory and seeking it with all
the vigor of a team on the rebound.
Lineup Is Same
Coach Cappy Cappon will start
the same five that has opened all
of the Conference games. This will,
as usual, give Michigan a sizeable
height advantage over the suppressed
Wisconsin's major threat is its
two forwards, George Rooney and
Hod Powell. Rooney is fifth in Con-
ference scoring with 10 field goals'
and five free throws for a total of
25 points. Farther down in the list
is Powell, who had been going great
guns until he ran into Ohio State
last Monday and was held scoreless,
with 18 points.
Badger Center Is Weak
,The weakest point in the Badger
attack is the center postion which
is being held down by Bud Bell, who
took the spot vacated by the ineligi-
bility of last year's pivot man after
playing first string forward last sea-
Like hPurdue and Northwestern,
Wisconsin will try to stop Michigan
with a fast break for which the
Wolverines are supposedly suckers.
If the Badger's speed starts func-
tioning the Varsity may find plenty
of trouble ahead for them.
Monday night will find Coach Cap-
Pon and his squad back in Chicago to
meet the University of Chicago Ma-
roons who take on Northwestern
tomorrow night. The Maroons time
are keeping Wisconsin company in
the cellar with two losses in as
many tries. But like the Badgers
they have plenty of potential dyna-
mite and if they ever get the jump
they'll be hard to beat.
